January Has Come And Gone

January has come and gone and it is now the first of February 2018. The start of a new life for me. My dear husband passed away mid January. He left three wonderful children and their mates and 5 grand children with one on the way. He will be missed by all of us. I am learning to deal with my grief and will find a way to go on and make him proud of me. I have taken the next few months off from teaching in order to process this whole change. I imagine I will spend most of my time in the studio making art, some of the time on the computer trying to stay caught up and the rest of the time remembering what a great man he was, true to his word, funny, responsible and head over heals in love with me as I am with him.




On a much lighter note the month of January also brought a box of books.

My brother Mark has written the first of the Steve Walsh mysteries. I love the cover and the back shows the quilt that I made that has the clue to who done it!!

You can order it for e readers at amazon or if you want an old fashion hard copy you can order it from me on this web site.
It is a great read if I do say so myself. I am now pondering the quilt for the second book!!
I am so proud of him.



May the rest of the year bring healing and happiness to all of us.
thanks for your support
